Sacramento Bee: NO on Prop 87

If you have been to Congressional Pork Hunter before, you may have noticed the little box that says, "No on the Oil Tax Initiative." It appears others are starting to voice the same opinion.

The Sacramento Bee's editorial has an editorial about proposition 87. This is quite unusual, since Sacramento is a socialist town. Kudos are in order to the Sacramento Bee. Thank you.

"Proposition 87 mandates the expenditure of $4 billion and authorizes the new agency to sell bonds to incur this debt, regardless of whether the new tax will generate sufficient revenue to pay the principal and interest on the bonds. As a result, it creates a significant risk for the taxpayers and the programs funded by the State's General Fund."
